Nagual Art - the German Dark Ambient Soundtrack Project - was founded in 2005. Inspired by dreams and an abstract mindset, I try to render dreams audible and - the other way around - to provide a possible access to subconsciousness and dreams through music. Abstract-dark, confused-melancholic soundscapes with neo-classical influences emanate from this musical concept. Stop your thoughts, start to dream, live!

i like when the strings can be seen. (i believe it's called metafiction, a kind of metalanguage). when children play "let's pretend", using the past tense to speak of what they are still about to do. when a painter doesn't hide "pentimenti". "Funny Thoughts" is a showcase of hypotheses for songs. in this six-packed collection you can find tunes that can be whistled, if one wishes to do so, together with thought-provoking chords progressions and interesting...

"On this EP are four songs, sonic artifacts extracted from audio Gnostic hyperspaces both minraudian and mauve, as transmitted by the musical entity known only as Sypha Nadon. Little else is known about the nature of these recordings, but we can put foward various esoteric theories: The aural soundtrack of a sentinent asylum's reptile brain?

For this, our sixth label release, the dream is taken up by Israeli songwriter and soundsmith Harel Gal. When Harel contacted the PlagueDream Institute, we were immediately struck by the intimacy and tenderness of his musical vision. His sonic palette is often melancholic, occasionally foreboding, but never bleak. In addition to playing guitar, flute, electronics, and many other instruments and non-musical objects, Harel also has the distinction of being the first singer on the label. His...

Fabrizio Torri's first album for This Plague of Dreaming is a strange world of echoes, of memory, and of golden, shifting light. Torri's music is frequently retro in sound, but it has been filtered through the distortion of the intervening decades, rounding its sharp edges and blurring its outline in warmth and dust. This is music to listen to alone, with headphones and closed eyes and the sun on your face. Topics: Ambient, Guitar, Aquatic, Sunlight, Memories

"The message of music is a message on the world of sounds, on a world that all know, but still explore to fund both from the composer and from that of the public that enjoys it. "The composer is the explorer that, digging in himself, travels in this world bringing us the fabulous news that of time in time he succeeds in discovering. "The true composer is one who opens new streets of access in the tangle of the forest of sound, and that doesn't stop for any obstacle or exploit... Topics: electroacoustic, electronic, experimental

This, Sypha Nadon's second full-length release, marks a new phase in his musical development. The familiar elements are still here - the signature off-kilter melodies and savage noise breaks - but the album is more unified than previous efforts. Threnody is also SN's most minimalistic work thus far, allowing simple patterns and complex textures to unravel over time, revealing their inner richness.

"Goghst's second album is a sonic journey through the tired mind, the late at night mind when you think about the universe, and insomnia or fear of the dark or worse keeps you up. This is the soundtrack to the movie you see behind your tired eyes. This is the insomnia rising from the silent night to say "I am here! And I don't know why!" You can call this album experimental ambient indietronica through LSD headphones. If you still need a reason to listen, then maybe you're not...
